A report on the strength of IP protections in 50 countries

In a remarkably short time viewed in a historical context, the lives of billions of people worldwide have been transformed for the better through innovation and creativity. Intellectual property (IP) systems have been the driving force behind this transformation, providing a legal framework of rights and responsibilities that has inspired the world’s innovators and creators to envision a better tomorrow and empowered them to secure it.

The 2019 U.S. Chamber International IP Index creates a roadmap for countries that aspire to foster economic growth and global competitiveness through stronger IP. Now in its 7th edition, the Index benchmarks the IP framework in 50 global economies.
